Why are Thursdays always so dead?  
I read a Men's Fitness magazine at the gym today, not realizing that what I really wanted was the Wired flowchart for "Are You An Evil Twin?" Sadly, there's no online entry for me to link you to, but I did find one for The Lohan Prophecies Predict The Pop-Apocalypse. Great graphics. ;)

I spoke to my Dad earlier this week (over the top of Glee), who announced that they've finished putting skylights in the living room so it won't be so dark (it's like a cave in there). I asked again whether they couldn't just have opened the blinds (like normal people), and he said, "No, I don't like those people over the back fence. This is much safer for us." WHY must my Dad always look for weird, convoluted solutions to simple problems? o_O

Some coworkers were randomly talking about apple trees last night, which reminded me that I was almost a month behind in looking for Gravensteins from Bel Air. HSH got some for me, and I need to stockpile more before they're gone. SOOOOO good.

Almost a year ago, I went in search of whether I could find HTML code for special symbols to put on some of my (now massive) fic pages. You know-- pumpkins and stuff like that. Sadly, I did not, though I ran across this selection: ☻ ♠ ♣ There are a few others, but I can't find the private post where I saved them.

I still want a pumpkin one...

Must try Garvensteins - Pink Lady is my favorite currently. :)

Link to bullets and this page has a link to a bunch more. I did not see a pumpkin one. :(

Bel Air is the only place in Sacramento that seems to have them, and only in September/October. They're much easier to find in Oregon and Washington (and easier to grow, too). They're sweet and tart at the same time, wonderful taste.

Thanks for the link! I canNOT find the web entry I made ages ago, which had the above plus a black telephone. We need more fun HTML images! Especially to set stories apart in lists. And other dumb stuff-- who wouldn't want to randomly leave a pumpkin or snowman in the comments? :)

The Pink Lady is like a kind of like a Gala but more tart. I'll try Bel-air, but I'll have to find the nearest one. :) I'm in Rio Linda so...

Cute bullets would be fun. There must be way but I'm not code savvy enough to figure it out. :( I think the ones on these pages are based on common PC fonts - so nearly every machine will have the symbols availble. I'm guessing you could do a link to a graphic bullet just like you do for pic and as long as you kept the code handy it wouldn't be too big of pain.
